Just acquired an iPod Touch.

Quickly found myself adjust the volume. Seems iOS doesn't support ReplayGain but uses it's own system, SoundCheck.

The ReplayGain tags I have on my mp3 files are set by lame.

It looks like http://www.vdberg.org/~richard/rg2sc.html might do the trick (I transcode everything from flac in Linux) but I'm out of town at the moment.

Thought is have my shell script do flac -> lame as it always does, applying the ReplayGain, and then run rg2sc perl script on the result so they play at right volume in iOS.

But I just want to ask if there's a better (also free) solution out there. I don't have a perl environment on my Windows laptop so I can't even really try the script.
I definitely want something that works from *nix cli.


And am I correct that I will need to disable SoundCheck in iTunes or it will rewrite them every time I play a song in iTunes on my laptop?
